I'm an independent journalist reporting on gender, human rights, and women's and girls' lives in South Asia. Previously, I worked at CNN and the Washington Post. 

I've reported on gender in India and the United States; covered the 2016 American presidential election; launched and developed editorial strategy for CNN on emerging platforms; and led digital innovations and developed digital strategy for the Washington Post's national and politics desk. I've also Facebook Live-d from the back of a motorcycle from the Olympics, curated part of a museum exhibit about the 2016 presidential election, captured motherhood with disposable cameras around the world, and used voicemails to cover love stories and politics. 

Take a look at some of my work.
